A new phone is one of the most important purchases you’ll make. You probably use it more times each day than any other device, so you’ll want to pick one that’s just right. It’s easy to spend hours scouring the web looking for the best offers, but we’ve done the legwork for you. We’ve gone ahead and gathered some of the best phone deals available to save you time and money.
We’re mainly sticking with unlocked deals for now but we’ve thrown in some of the best carrier offers too. We’ve made note of the international devices as well, but make sure to check carefully before you buy.
Featured deal: Get the Microsoft Surface Duo for just $699
If you passed on the novel Microsoft Surface Duo at $1,400, you might be more inclined to give it a look today. BuyDig currently has it on offer for just $699 ($700 off), and you also get a free pair of LG Tone Free HBS-FN6 earbuds worth over $100.
The Surface Duo hasn’t taken the market by storm, although that’s not down to the specs — it’s powered by the Snapdragon 855 processor and 6GB of RAM. It’s more due to the lack of identity and somewhat buggy software as Microsoft tries to break new ground. It’s worth mentioning that, despite the name, this is an Android-powered device rather than running on Windows.

The screen is undeniably cool. It’s not a true foldable due to the hinge, but it can be used as an 8.1-inch AMOLED screen or as dual screens to run two apps at the same time. Very useful when you have two pressing engagements at once, such as Netflix and Facebook.
The LG Tone Free HBS-FN6 earbuds are genuinely worthy in their own right, so they’re a real bonus in this deal. The buds are IPX4-rated, and the silicone ear tips are very comfortable. They even have a UVnano charging case to cleanse the tips when not in use.
The deal ends in the coming days — if stock lasts that long. Hit the widget below to check out the deal.
